URZZZZ According to the BBC, if we manage to beat Blackpool in the replay, our game against Cardiff/Carlisle will be 15:00 on the Sunday. That seems a little strange

Also surprised if United beat Wolves, they're listed as a Saturday 3pm game. Presume that's the wrong way around?


Yep, looks like the BBC just has it the wrong way round.

Makes sense, no reason for them to do that

A nice draw against Cardiff if we play them in the 4th round and it'll be three games against them in 10 days

After last night I am thinking that Reading Under 23's can go all the way to Wembley. :D

Cardiff at home a week before going to Cardiff in the league. Both sides likely to put out strong reserve teams and the last thing anyone would want is a draw to have 3 games with Cardiff in 2 weeks (and maybe even 3 games in a row). Both sides will see it as winnable though but the attendance really won’t be great.

I would hope we wouldn`t put out a fully blown reserve side in this one, Cardiff fielded quite a strong side last night, wouldn`t fancy our U23s against their first team.

Club 1871 closed for the Cardiff game. That will go down well.

Yep away allocation entitled to the whole end in the cup.

Always going to be the case though in the Cup if the away side take their full allocation. Would imagine all 1871 STs were made aware of that when buying them. Sure some will complain though.

Not the full end but 15% of total capacity so about 3100- essentially makes segregation impossible in that stand.

I thought they started randomly playing a chunk of fixtures on the Sunday?

I genuinely can't remember the last time I've actually been to an FA cup game. Always seem to have something on I can't get out of every time we have a home fixture, must be years since I've been. Should make this one though

I see they're being given priority in Y25/Y26 (behind Y25/Y26 ST holders but in front of other members/ST holders). So will be interesting to see what the sound is like for the big reunion!

Manchester United - 19/12/2016 was my last FA Cup game.

Last one at home was Brentford - 07/09/2016.

Obviously did the Semi-final in between.

Did the League Cup game against Watford - 29/08/2018 more recently though.

You sure?

When did we play Brentford in the FA Cup?
